Re: The BEST way to kill Elk

I'd shoot the elk anywhere other than where the OP would. I'd check with bigngreen. He could teach the OP many things he's never even considered. Including some respect of other hunters and Forum members.

Wildrose,

I'll tape that pic w/your X on my butt stock and go from there.

Phorwath: I'm ppoor w/acronyms - I'd shoot the elk anywhere other than where the OP would.

What the squat does OP stand for?

Roy,
OP means Original Poster. In this Thread - Nonya. The member that started this Thread. My prior post was purposely impolite.

Re: The BEST way to kill Elk

I use mtbohunter as my tag here because I do love bowhunting but I have killed about 20 elk with a rifle and I havent read where anyone scolded the secondary article writer about his talking about shooting an elk in the head.

Wrong Answer!

If you don't have more respect for the game you hunt then that then I can shamelessly say, Shame On You! Never shoot an animal in the head except to dispatch a wounded animal. The number one reason why not to is I have watched animals starve to death without a jaw. Dont do it!

Onward from there. I shoot for 1" behind the shoulder, center mass 338wm 225 Barns. I think wasting meat is disrespectful as well. I will say though, I shot one bull in the lungs and again in the lungs and again.. 7 shots in the lungs.
Wrong bullet.
Super X200gr Never again. Switched to Barns and have not fallowed one more then 100yd since. This years opening morning bull on a 5 mile in backpack hunt went straight down. Two days later he was home in the beer fridge. Today I cut the steaks and ground the burger! Montana at its best!

Since he learned that lesson long ago and it's been well covered here numerous times no need to beat a dead mule.

Very nice rack, start your own thread and tell us more. Congrats!
